49th General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federations

By BEN ROSENTHAL

President, Junior Division
Detroit Jewish Welfare
Federation

The young Jewish men
and women of America are
facing a unique and impor-
tant challenge for the future
of American Jewry. We are
faced with the problems of
the rise of "oil power," the
rise in anti-Semitism and
the changing economic role
of America.
There is the temptation
for assimilation through
inter-marriage and/or the
conscious putting aside of
one's Jewishness. The tradi-
tional institutions of the
synagogue, Hebrew school
and the family are under at-
tack.
However, from my view
point as President of the
Junior Division of the
Jewish Welfare Federation
of Detroit, I believe that we
are meeting this challenge.
I believe that the young
Jews of America are re-
sponding to the crisis
through renewed ac-
tivism. We see the rise in
anti-Semitism around us
and start to relate it to the
experiences that we have
read about in Europe in
the 1930s.
We see that American
Jewry can affect the
Presidential election and
elect the man most favora-
ble to our position and ideas.
We see that through the
Jewish organizations and
synagogues there is an

opportunity to express our-
selves and provide for our
future and the future of the
Jews in our surrounding
communities.
Instead of being pesimis-
tic, I am very optimistic —
young American Jewry has
the necessary commitment.
The older generation also
has a unique and important
challenge. They must make
available for us the oppor-
tunities to express this
commitment through our
various institutions and
agencies. They must con-
tinue to nurture this grow-
ing awareness of our

Center's Quiz-Qube at CJF

DETROIT (JTA) — For
more than a year now vis-
itors to the Jewish Commu-
nity Center of Metropolitan
Detroit have been able to
test their "JEQ" — their
"Jewish Education Quo-
tient" — with a new learn-
ing machine.
- The Quiz-Qube is a com-
puterized educational game
that presents players with
10-question, multiple-
choice quizzes, which
change each week.
It takes about five min-
utes to finish a Quiz-Qube
quiz, and a computer
allows the game to be
played by one player or
two at a time. The com-
puter keeps track of the
players' scores and dis-
plays them at the end of

the game.
In the 15 months the new
computer game has been in
operation, an estimated
50,000 games ahve been
played on it. If the current
use volume continues, the
Quiz-Qube game will be
played in excess of 65,000
times by the end of its first
two years of operation.
The Quiz-Qube was de-
veloped by a firm headed by
the Center's former execu-
tive vice president, Irwin
Shaw.
The Quiz-Qube will be
displayed for five days at
the 49th General Assembly
of the Council of Jewish
Federations, at the sugges-
tion of the Center's execu-
tive director, Dr. Morton
Plotnick.
